Re: ***News Stories Thread*** ONGOING 2021

Lovely story about a 20 year survivor who lives in my neck of the woods. For years, Shelby Sherritt was known as the “cancer girl”. “All my friends were like ‘Oh, she’s going through treatments’ or ‘That’s the girl from high school that got cancer’,” she says. “For so long I thought that my narrativ...

So when it comes to keeping people alive who gets all the credit? The heart . . . pump, pump, pump, pump. What else does it do? Nothing. I'll tell you what I do.

Re: I need to scream this out loud: "GoLYTELY IS OUT OF MY LIFE!"
